Nigeria must win match against Iceland.

Neither side comes into this match in good form, although Iceland will be buoyed by their valiant performance against Argentina.

Iceland are in search of their first ever World Cup finals victory.Iceland have now drawn their last two matches and have failed to win any of their last five. That said, Heimir Hallgrímsson’s side have scored in each of their last four matches.

Nigeria’s recent record is even worse. Gernot Rohr’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat to Croatia in their opening World Cup match. The defeat is the Super Eagles’ fourth in five matches. Defeat for Nigeria would confirm their elimination from the tournament, with a match to spare.Nigeria headed to Russia with other nations in awe of their kit, but the Super Eagles were poor in a 2-0 defeat against Croatia and must get a result.

The two sides have only met once before, in a friendly in 1981. Iceland won the match 3-0.
